Genesis is an event geared specifically for 9th-12th grade youth groups, where leaders and students can grow individually and as a group, connecting with youth that have all converged on the Grand Traverse Resort from around the Great Lakes Region. You will have the opportunity to worship honestly and grow spiritually, serve as a group, and enjoy numerous recreational opportunities in some pretty fantastic accommodations. Your registration fee includes two nights lodging, 3 meals Saturday, breakfast Sunday, and all scheduled events/activities.
This event doesn’t run without the help of a small army of volunteers! They help with things like onsite registration, elevators, merchandise booths, recreation, hospitality and more! You will be contacted via email by December 31st regarding your acceptance or decline. As much as we would like to accept everyone who applies, we may not be able to. Your interest is greatly appreciated either way! (All volunteers provide their own transportation. Genesis provides meals and lodging (2 per room) once you are on site.)
Group Registration begins August 1. It’s important we receive your Group Registration as soon as possible so that we can keep you up-to-date with all details and timelines for individual registration. Reservations for Genesis are on a first come, first served basis. We will try our best to accommodate any Group Registration submitted after November 1, but availability is not guaranteed.
Individual Registration is now open for Registered Churches. You will need your insurance, medical information, and emergency contact numbers as you sign up. You will also be able to preorder apparel. Your Youth Director will collect funds due. Upon completing the online registration, you will have the opportunity to donate to our mission partner, Sole Hope. An offering will also be taken at the event should you prefer that. Youth under 18 must have a parent present when signing up. All registrations are non-refundable, but we will allow a student to find someone of the same gender to take their place in the event they can no longer attend.
